The opportunity came to me again to go to Sweden and work on a film set. This time it was a feature film, not a TV series. I’m so grateful!
Spent a week working as a props assistant and also got to see the shooting of the final scene in the film. That was spectacular, accompanied by the midnight sun.
Got to met a bunch of kind and inspiring people and amongst them a few familiar faces from last year.
I also got to chat with the producer – and let’s hope a seed is planted for future cooperation.
Thanks for having me, Sweden! Now off to writing…
Home from Sweden!
It was truly a great experience working on that filmset! They welcomed me with open arms, let me work and see it all and answered my newbie questions.
I talked to one of the screenwriters, the director and one of the producers. It was so interesting hearing their thoughts on the script and the production.
I also learned a lot about props, of course. And lighting. And sound. The more I learn about what’s actually behind the camera, the more it becomes impossible to watch movies like I used to.
And I like that.
I’m very fortunate to get the chance to go to Sweden and work as a Stand By Props assistant for a week and a half.
I figured, I can’t be a screenwriter and not know about the dynamics and the collaboration and the chaos and the fun on a filmset!
So, I just jumped on board Karel Seger’s Insider Program on getting your screenplay read and sold.
It’s a self study, but not to be mistaken for easy.
Karel Segers never makes it easy for you – and that’s why he’s one of the best to learn from.
Here we go!
Ready, set, GO!
The Tasploitation challenge package for our team contains:
- A worn out green woman’s wallet
- The dialogue line “I can’t think of myself, my body, sometimes, without seeing the skeleton”
- The horror sub genre “Giallo”
Never in my whole life have I heard of Giallo, so this is gonna be interesting…
Mind you that no two teams get the same prompts package. That’s what’s so exciting about this challenge!
I have the honor of joining up as a writer with team North By South for the Tasploitation challenge 2017!
Norway meets Australia for this!
As a team you get 48 hours to write, shoot, edit, score and submit a horror short film – BUT you are not completely free.
The second the challenge set off, your team are given a “surprise-package” with a prop, a line of dialogue and a horror sub genre that must be included.
This is exciting!

I graduated from Immersion Screenwriting!
180 days – 3 stages – from zero knowledge of the craft to being on my way to build a solid base for my career…
These six months have been the most exciting journey. I got to challenge myself in dicipline and persistence, I met a bunch of really great people online and of course; I learned A LOT.
I am forever grateful to Karel Segers and the opportunity to join his course.
Well, I didn’t make it into the Top Ten in the Stage 32 Short Film Script Contest, but hey, what a start….
I never expected to actually come as far as to the Semi Finals – I mean, with my first short screenplay ever??
I’m grateful for this experience, and I know it’s only one way from here and that’s up.
I have plans for “Run Don’t Run”.
Run Don’t Run made it to the Stage 32 Semi Finals….
I’m in the Stage 32 Quarter Finals with four of my five short screenplays!
